Now a certain man was sick, named Lazarus, of Bethany, the town of
Mary and her sister Martha.
(It was that Mary which anointed the Lord with ointment, and wiped
his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick.)
Therefore his sisters sent unto him, saying, Lord, behold, he whom
thou lovest is sick.
When Jesus heard that, he said, This sickness is not unto death, but
for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby.
Now Jesus loved Martha, and her sister, and Lazarus.
When he had heard therefore that he was sick, he abode two days still
in the same place where he was.
Then after that saith he to his disciples, Let us go into Judaea
His disciples say unto him, Master, the Jews of late sought to stone
thee; and goest thou thither again?
Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any man
walk in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of this
But if a man walk in the night, he stumbleth, because there is no
light in him.
These things said he: and after that he saith unto them, Our friend
Lazarus sleepeth; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep.
Then said his disciples, Lord, if he sleep, he shall do well.
Howbeit Jesus spake of his death: but they thought that he had spoken
of taking of rest in sleep.
Then said Jesus unto them plainly, Lazarus is dead.
And I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, to the intent ye
may believe; nevertheless let us go unto him.
Then said Thomas, which is called Didymus, unto his fellowdisciples,
Let us also go, that we may die with him.
Then when Jesus came, he found that he had lain in the grave four
Now Bethany was nigh unto Jerusalem, about fifteen furlongs off:
And many of the Jews came to Martha and Mary, to comfort them
concerning their brother.
Then Martha, as soon as she heard that Jesus was coming, went and met
him: but Mary sat still in the house.
Then said Martha unto Jesus, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my
brother had not died.
But I know, that even now, whatsoever thou wilt ask of God, God will
give it thee.
Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again.
Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the
resurrection at the last day.
Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that
believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:
And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest
She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I believe that thou art the Christ,
the Son of God, which should come into the world.
And when she had so said, she went her way, and called Mary her
sister secretly, saying, The Master is come, and calleth for thee.
As soon as she heard that, she arose quickly, and came unto him.
Now Jesus was not yet come into the town, but was in that place where
Martha met him.
The Jews then which were with her in the house, and comforted her,
when they saw Mary, that she rose up hastily and went out, followed
her, saying, She goeth unto the grave to weep there.
Then when Mary was come where Jesus was, and saw him, she fell down
at his feet, saying unto him, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my
brother had not died.
When Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and the Jews also weeping which
came with her, he groaned in the spirit, and was troubled,
And said, Where have ye laid him? They said unto him, Lord, come and
Then said the Jews, Behold how he loved him!
And some of them said, Could not this man, which opened the eyes of
the blind, have caused that even this man should not have died?
Jesus therefore again groaning in himself cometh to the grave. It was
a cave, and a stone lay upon it.
Jesus said, Take ye away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that
was dead, saith unto him, Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath
been dead four days.
Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest
believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?
Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid.
And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that
thou hast heard me.
And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the people
which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent
And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus,
And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with
graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith
unto them, Loose him, and let him go.
Then many of the Jews which came to Mary, and had seen the things
which Jesus did, believed on him.
But some of them went their ways to the Pharisees, and told them what
things Jesus had done.
Then gathered the chief priests and the Pharisees a council, and
said, What do we? for this man doeth many miracles.
If we let him thus alone, all men will believe on him: and the Romans
shall come and take away both our place and nation.
And one of them, named Caiaphas, being the high priest that same
year, said unto them, Ye know nothing at all,
Nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man should die for
the people, and that the whole nation perish not.
And this spake he not of himself: but being high priest that year, he
prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation;
And not for that nation only, but that also he should gather together
in one the children of God that were scattered abroad.
Then from that day forth they took counsel together for to put him to
Jesus therefore walked no more openly among the Jews; but went thence
unto a country near to the wilderness, into a city called Ephraim,
and there continued with his disciples.
And the Jews' passover was nigh at hand: and many went out of the
country up to Jerusalem before the passover, to purify themselves.
Then sought they for Jesus, and spake among themselves, as they stood
in the temple, What think ye, that he will not come to the feast?
Now both the chief priests and the Pharisees had given a commandment,
that, if any man knew where he were, he should shew it, that they
might take him.
Then Jesus six days before the passover came to Bethany, where
Lazarus was which had been dead, whom he raised from the dead.
There they made him a supper; and Martha served: but Lazarus was one
of them that sat at the table with him.
Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and
anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair: and the
house was filled with the odour of the ointment.
Then saith one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, which
should betray him,
Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given to
This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a
thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein.
Then said Jesus, Let her alone: against the day of my burying hath
she kept this.
For the poor always ye have with you; but me ye have not always.
Much people of the Jews therefore knew that he was there: and they
came not for Jesus' sake only, but that they might see Lazarus also,
whom he had raised from the dead.
But the chief priests consulted that they might put Lazarus also to
Because that by reason of him many of the Jews went away, and
believed on Jesus.
On the next day much people that were come to the feast, when they
heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem,
Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried,
Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the
And Jesus, when he had found a young ass, sat thereon; as it is
Fear not, daughter of Sion: behold, thy King cometh, sitting on an
These things understood not his disciples at the first: but when
Jesus was glorified, then remembered they that these things were
written of him, and that they had done these things unto him.
The people therefore that was with him when he called Lazarus out of
his grave, and raised him from the dead, bare record.
For this cause the people also met him, for that they heard that he
had done this miracle.
The Pharisees therefore said among themselves, Perceive ye how ye
prevail nothing? behold, the world is gone after him.
And there were certain Greeks among them that came up to worship at
The same came therefore to Philip, which was of Bethsaida of Galilee,
and desired him, saying, Sir, we would see Jesus.
Philip cometh and telleth Andrew: and again Andrew and Philip tell
And Jesus answered them, saying, The hour is come, that the Son of
man should be glorified.
Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the
ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth
He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in
this world shall keep it unto life eternal.
If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall
also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour.
Now is my soul troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save me from
this hour: but for this cause came I unto this hour.
Father, glorify thy name. Then came there a voice from heaven,
saying, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again.
The people therefore, that stood by, and heard it, said that it
thundered: others said, An angel spake to him.
Jesus answered and said, This voice came not because of me, but for
Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world
be cast out.
And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.
This he said, signifying what death he should die.
The people answered him, We have heard out of the law that Christ
abideth for ever: and how sayest thou, The Son of man must be lifted
up? who is this Son of man?
Then Jesus said unto them, Yet a little while is the light with you.
Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he
that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth.
While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the
children of light. These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did
hide himself from them.
But though he had done so many miracles before them, yet they
believed not on him:
That the saying of Esaias the prophet might be fulfilled, which he
spake, Lord, who hath believed our report? and to whom hath the arm
of the Lord been revealed?
Therefore they could not believe, because that Esaias said again,
He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they
should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and
be converted, and I should heal them.
These things said Esaias, when he saw his glory, and spake of him.
Nevertheless among the chief rulers also many believed on him; but
because of the Pharisees they did not confess him, lest they should
be put out of the synagogue:
For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.
Jesus cried and said, He that believeth on me, believeth not on me,
but on him that sent me.
And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me.
I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me
should not abide in darkness.
And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I
came not to judge the world, but to save the world.
He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that
judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in
the last day.
For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he
gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.
And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I
speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.
Now before the feast of the passover, when Jesus knew that his hour
was come that he should depart out of this world unto the Father,
having loved his own which were in the world, he loved them unto the
And supper being ended, the devil having now put into the heart of
Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, to betray him;
Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands,
and that he was come from God, and went to God;
He riseth from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel,
and girded himself.
After that he poureth water into a bason, and began to wash the
disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was
Then cometh he to Simon Peter: and Peter saith unto him, Lord, dost
thou wash my feet?
Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do thou knowest not now; but
thou shalt know hereafter.
Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered
him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me.
Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands
and my head.
Jesus saith to him, He that is washed needeth not save to wash his
feet, but is clean every whit: and ye are clean, but not all.
For he knew who should betray him; therefore said he, Ye are not all
So after he had washed their feet, and had taken his garments, and
was set down again, he said unto them, Know ye what I have done to
Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am.
If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought
to wash one another's feet.
For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to
Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his
lord; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him.
If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them.
I speak not of you all: I know whom I have chosen: but that the
scripture may be fulfilled, He that eateth bread with me hath lifted
up his heel against me.
Now I tell you before it come, that, when it is come to pass, ye may
believe that I am he.
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that receiveth whomsoever I send
receiveth me; and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.
When Jesus had thus said, he was troubled in spirit, and testified,
and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, that one of you shall
Then the disciples looked one on another, doubting of whom he spake.
Now there was leaning on Jesus' bosom one of his disciples, whom
Simon Peter therefore beckoned to him, that he should ask who it
should be of whom he spake.
He then lying on Jesus' breast saith unto him, Lord, who is it?
Jesus answered, He it is, to whom I shall give a sop, when I have
dipped it. And when he had dipped the sop, he gave it to Judas
Iscariot, the son of Simon.
And after the sop Satan entered into him. Then said Jesus unto him,
That thou doest, do quickly.
Now no man at the table knew for what intent he spake this unto him.
For some of them thought, because Judas had the bag, that Jesus had
said unto him, Buy those things that we have need of against the
feast; or, that he should give something to the poor.
He then having received the sop went immediately out: and it was
Therefore, when he was gone out, Jesus said, Now is the Son of man
glorified, and God is glorified in him.
If God be glorified in him, God shall also glorify him in himself,
and shall straightway glorify him.
Little children, yet a little while I am with you. Ye shall seek me:
and as I said unto the Jews, Whither I go, ye cannot come; so now I
say to you.
A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I
have loved you, that ye also love one another.
By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love
one to another.
Simon Peter said unto him, Lord, whither goest thou? Jesus answered
him, Whither I go, thou canst not follow me now; but thou shalt
follow me afterwards.
Peter said unto him, Lord, why cannot I follow thee now? I will lay
down my life for thy sake.
Jesus answered him, Wilt thou lay down thy life for my sake? Verily,
verily, I say unto thee, The cock shall not crow, till thou hast
denied me thrice.
Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would
have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and
receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.
Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how
can we know the way?
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man
cometh unto the Father, but by me.
If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from
henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.
Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us.
Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast
thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father;
and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?
Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the
words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father
that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.
Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else
believe me for the very works' sake.
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works
that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do;
because I go unto my Father.
And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the
Father may be glorified in the Son.
If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.
If ye love me, keep my commandments.
And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter,
that he may abide with you for ever;
Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it
seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth
with you, and shall be in you.
I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.
Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me:
because I live, ye shall live also.
At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I
He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth
me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will
love him, and will manifest myself to him.
Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt
manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world?
Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my
words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and
make our abode with him.
He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye
hear is not mine, but the Father's which sent me.
These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you.
But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send
in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to
your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world
giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let
it be afraid.
Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto
you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the
Father: for my Father is greater than I.
And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come
to pass, ye might believe.
Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world
cometh, and hath nothing in me.
But that the world may know that I love the Father; and as the Father
gave me commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go hence.
I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.
Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every
branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth
Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.
Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself,
except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.
I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in
him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do
If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is
withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they
If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye
will, and it shall be done unto you.
Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye
be my disciples.
As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my
If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have
kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love.
These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you,
and that your joy might be full.
This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for
Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.
Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what
his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I
have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.
Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that
ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should
remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may
give it you.
These things I command you, that ye love one another.
If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.
If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye
are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world,
therefore the world hateth you.
Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater
than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute
you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.
But all these things will they do unto you for my name's sake,
because they know not him that sent me.
If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now
they have no cloke for their sin.
He that hateth me hateth my Father also.
If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they
had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my
But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is
written in their law, They hated me without a cause.
But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the
Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father,
he shall testify of me:
And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the
